definition of compromise. and we are going to require some more revenue. john boehner himself said, he thought there was $800 billion in revenue from closing loopholes. we dealt with the tax rate issue. now it's about loopholes, and i think the country would be well served by tax and entitlement reform because it will help our economy. >> that's what i was going to ask you because both john boehner and republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell said the revenue debate is over. no more taxes. are you saying that the president will only sign a budget deal if it includes new revenues? >> yes, it's got to be balanced. and, by the way, they weren't saying that a matter of weeks ago. speaker boehner said 800 billion from closing loopholes. what's changed in the last four weeks? nothing. so there's plenty of loopholes whether it's people shipping jobs overseas who get preferential tax treatment. the subsidies to the energy companies. loopholes for, you know, billionaires, there are things we can close here to make -- >> you're saying no deal if they don't -- >> we need balance, george. w
successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a
the latter. >> who are we?! >> we are pizza. >> this is what john boehner is watching? >> a sneak peek of what john boehner and eric cantor and the republicans are getting. the first step to solving a problem is admitting you have a problem. >> and it is really bad. the poll numbers are, with i mean, when you tell the viewers, when you told me earlier, i was shocked. >> everybody knows that congress is less popular than a root canal, but when you break it down by party, you've got a real problem. here the gop's own pollsters are giving them bad medicine. right now, the republican party have only 27% approval. that's almost 20 points less than democrats, and half of where republicans were almost two years ago when the tea party crowd ran into town. it is a major wake-up call, a cautionary tale, and a lot of issues for future, because they're going to have a hard time with the debt ceiling. that 27 could go to 12. >> there is usually somewhere lower to go. thank you very much, john avalon. >>> all right, well "outfront" next, we are learning new details about the american hostages in alg
that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a bill on day
much, nicole. cheryl: breaking news into "markets now." john boehner says there should be no long-term u.s. debt limit increase before the senate passes a budget. this just crossing again that breaking news comments from john boehner. dennis: hackers wreaking havoc on u.s. banks with now where that could put your money at risk but the risk goes far beyond banks. boarding lawmakers of an impending pearl harbor, so who is responsible and how can we eliminate this rather unconventional threat? one of governments go to on cyber security. former navy seal officer. thank you for being with us, john. the iranians we know now are attacking u.s. banks. do we know what they were after? apparently they didn't steal customer information. >> first, thank you for having me on. there's a lot of different facets to this attack. all the indications point that the freedom fighters or cyber fighters, tha there hasn't beeny information released as to what they were after other than disrupting the financial networks. i think that is an important point because disruption itself in these networks is in
and the jeers that minority leader speaker john boehner received along with a couple of other leaders, republican leaders in the house. it was out of place for this kind of a feelgood event, but, nonetheless, you could see the politics even on a day like today. you could see the politics never too far from where everybody else was. >> it seemed president obama spoke with a little more of a swagger than he usually does, and that's because he doesn't have to worry about re-election anymore? >> reporter: it's because he doesn't have to worry about re-elected. it's because he feels he's won the last two or three fights, and he has. including the raising of the income taxes and, of course, the delaying of the debt, another three months before they have to vote on that again, so he's feeling pretty good. he feels he has the republicans on a limb. i think you're right. he did speak with a little bit more of an attitude, if you will, today. not too much but a little bit more. he's trying to tell people, look, we're going to get out there and pound the pavement on what we think is important an
than spending cuts. could explain the president comment to john boehner that we don't have a spending problem. black caucus said we don't have entitlement problem. leave entitlements alone. nancy pelosi says we still have a revenue problem. don't leave the tax hikes alone. what is amazing these guys don't address a problem. this weekend we get ready to essentially coronate a president, there is no evidence anywhere among anyone in washington they even see a problem. nowhere in any of the inaugural events is so much as passing bought of spending period. more like a four-day spending palooza, celebrates wonder of government and those that benefit from the government the woman who has a job thanks to the auto rescue. the dad's whose family is protecting thanks to the health care law. i think you get the point. austerity isn't the point. more government is. this inaugural weekend is all about a blueprint for revving it up. the white house says it is low-keying the inaugural festivities because of economy, somehow cutting yourself down to two presidential balls doesn't exactly strike me as
feel sorry in some ways for my old friend john boehner because he is trying to lead a group of people who i think refuse to be led, let alone know how to be led any general direction. they should have listened colin powell with gregory over the weekend who laid out very clearly. there's a skism in their party. there's a dysfunction. he doesn't recognize it, and i'm sure he is not alone. i hope they'll get some order for them. the president has a big jaentd. we talked a little bit about it. star is talking about an issue that needs a set of issues that need to be addressed, and you have to have a minority party in the congress and the senate that you can work with. a leader on the other side who can coral his troops. right now it's an uncoralable and encourageable group. politico is on the republican side. >> one of the only solutions -- i guess not the only solution, about the one of the main solutions is totally unacceptable to republicans, and has to spend money to save money. by that i mean funding preventive care so early on in life you can have the dietary structure that you need
polling, 81% disapprove and the personal ratings of congressional leaders are under water. john boehner especially back, upside down by 19 points on the rating and the republican party's negative rating, 49%, is at the all-time high for the gop during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop lost the most ground with self described republicans. the tea party also has its lowest rating ever, positive views of the tea party, they have dropped to just 23%. joining me now while i get a glass of water after those numbers, nbc news senior political editor mark murray. listen. not to chew on again, but mark, why i like the segments is based on numbers. questions to what we assume are average voters out there and getting a glimpse of what these people both feel about their own personal situations and what some might call the shenanigans in d.c. >> the context is very important here, tamron. this is after the fiscal cliff fight we had right over the new year and also comes after the tragic shootings in newtown, connecticut. and of course, sets up president obama's
: at the luncheon which followed a more bipartisan tone. speaker of the house john boehner presented the president with a gift and good wish. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flag that flew over this battalion of democracy today to president barack obama and vice president joe biden, and to you gentlemen i say, congratulations, and godspeed. >> reporter: the most poignant picture of the day was this the president going inside from the west front of the capitol, pausing and turning for one last look down the vast expanse of the national mall. another thing he thought he might not see, some daylight on the debt limit fight. republicans said monday they would vote tomorrow to raise the debt limit for three months that delays at least for a while another showdown on the debt which could result in closing down the government. and in just three weeks we get the second act of the president's inaugural address, his state of the union speech. there he will lay out more specifics and washington will be waiting to see if the confrontation continues. norah, charlie?
, john boehner is not going to let that happen anyway. you might be right. here is the deal. you can't begin to have a negotiation between the house andnate on a compromise unless the senate has taken up the bill and passed it. >> right. >> fillibuster reform becomes critical to the gun safety debate. >> why does it seem harry reid is suddenly back tracking on fist filibuster reform. >> he is a man of the senate. russ feingold remember the real progressive members will tell you harry reid is a liberal guy. he's good. it is not that he doesn't want to open the door for getting things done but he truly is imbedded in this senate culture. >> in this system, this progresses. right? >> folks driving the reform tend to be the younger members. it's just a reality. >> anybody can look at the senate and know that et cetera broken. >> they are in a week position. this is a week position for them. >> for republicans? >> they lost two seats in a cycle where they should have won five or six. >> bill: right. >> a million.4. gerrymanned gerrymannedering is the only
. you're john boehner. how do you play your hand? >> i would negotiate. i've always been a big believer that you never give up. this is a lot of political stuff that's going on. every subject, everything is politicized and then there is the picker -- bickering going on and the finger pointing, but you got to always make an effort to bring people together and solve this problem. i think if i were him, i would work with the white house. >> brian: you think it's possible? you know it's not going well. >> i know. you can not give up because look, for the last four years, nothing got done in america. there is a lot of issues that need to be addressed. immigration reform, infrastructure, building high speed rail, getting rid of the deficit. education. we have to look at very carefully how do we stay competitive internationally with manufacturing and all this stuff? so there is a lot of issues that need to be addressed. we can't just freeze and say, it's hard to negotiate with the white house. everything is hard. when i sat there in sacramento, every single thing, you just wanted to build a ro
-- if congress acts on this, house speak her john boehner will have to play a significant role on this. yesterday after the president's remarks, the speaker was noncome mittal, saying there was little urgency to act. >> david keane, president of the national rifle association. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. my pleasure. >> i'll start with the quote of the mother of a 6-year-old who died. people who want to own firearms responsibly have nothing to fear from the president's proposal. you represent those law-abiding gun owners. what do they have to fear? >> they have a good deal to fear. they have to fear the establishment of the national registry. in the last few days, a senator from california and governor of new york suggested one of their goals is what they call a forced buyback. if you can get a record of who owns firearms, then the government could force them to sell those guns back to the government. >> let's talk about the proposals -- fair enough. let's talk about what's been proposed by the president. starting with universal background checks. why would it not be in the interes
